SUMMARY: The subject five-year review was instituted on December 3, 2012, to determine whether termination of the suspended investigation on fresh tomatoes from Mexico would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury (77 FR 71629, December 3, 2012). On February 28, 2013, Mexican tomato growers/exporters accounting for a significant percentage of all fresh tomatoes imported into the United States from Mexico provided written notice to the Department of Commerce of their withdrawal from the agreement suspending the antidumping investigation on fresh tomatoes from Mexico. Effective March 1, 2013, the Department of Commerce terminated the suspension agreement, terminated the five-year review of the suspended investigation, and resumed the antidumping investigation on fresh tomatoes from Mexico because the suspension agreement no longer covered substantially all imports of fresh tomatoes from Mexico. Accordingly, the U.S. International Trade Commission gives notice of the termination of its review and the resumption of its antidumping investigation of fresh tomatoes from Mexico. A schedule for the final phase of the investigation will be established and announced at a later date. DATES: Effective Date: March 4, 2013. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background. On November 1, 1996, the Department of Commerce (‘‘Commerce’’) suspended an antidumping investigation on imports of fresh tomatoes from Mexico (61 FR 56618, November 1, 1996). On October 1, 2001, Commerce initiated its first five-year review of the suspended investigation (66 FR 49926, October 1, 2001). On the basis of the withdrawal from the suspension agreement by Mexican tomato growers which accounted for a significant percentage of all fresh tomatoes imported into the United States from Mexico, Commerce terminated the suspension agreement, terminated the first five-year review, and resumed the antidumping E:\FR\FM\15MRN1.SGM 15MRN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Authority

    This DNCI is published pursuant to subsection 8(p)(3) of the OCS 
Lands Act (43 U.S.C. 1337(p)(3)), which was added by section 388 of the 
Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPAct), and the implementing regulations at 
30 CFR part 585. Subsection 8(p)(3) of the OCS Lands Act requires that 
OCS renewable energy leases, easements, and rights-of-way be issued 
``on a competitive basis unless the Secretary [of the Interior] 
determines after public notice of a proposed lease, easement, or right-
of-way (ROW) that there is no competitive interest.'' The Secretary 
delegated the authority to make such determinations to BOEM.

Determination and Next Steps

    This DNCI provides notice to the public that BOEM has determined 
there is no competitive interest in the proposed research lease area, 
as no indications of competitive interest were submitted in response to 
the RFCI.
    In the December 2012 RFCI, BOEM also solicited public comment on 
the proposed lease area and the proposed DMME research project and any 
potential impacts that the project may have. In response to the RFCI, 
BOEM received public comment submissions from four entities none of 
which expressed competitive interest in the proposed research lease 
area. However, BOEM will use the comments that it received to inform 
its subsequent decisions. After the publication of this DNCI, BOEM will 
proceed with the research lease issuance process outlined at 30 CFR 
585.238.
